For centuries, Britannian infantry platoons have been accompanied to battle by drummers, often cadets. Their task has been to beat out the commands of platoon leaders, giving the officers a more reliable means of transmitting manoeuvring prompts than mere shouted orders. They also beat out firing drills for their platoon. Working their traditional single-shot Martini-Metford No.4 rifles to the rapping of the drummer’s tattoo allows the disciplined Britannian infantry to maintain a much higher rate of fire.
